Smart Girl

I'm a smart girl.  No, really I am.  I have a Master's degree, lots of thoroughly read books on my bookshelf, and a professional career...  You just wouldn't know it by looking at me today.  I got the bright idea to do outfit pictures in Indiana's equivalent of a hurricane.  Lightening was striking all around me, thunder was rattling my camera tripod, and rain was pouring down so hard you couldn't even see to drive.  The rain let up for about five minutes so I ran to do pictures.  Not so smart considering this is what was happening in Indianapolis...
See that nice little red spot?  That's where I live...


Top: Limited
Skirt: Merona
Sweater: Merona
Boots: Steve Madden
Belt: Banana Republic







These boots, my beautiful leather boots are now soaked with rain water.  They are a nice dark brown color so if they are stained then at least they're stained a cute color.  But leather boots in the rain?  I swear, really I am a smart girl...
How far do you go for outfit pictures?

The rain has not been nice this morning (over 1hr drive to work!), but your outfit is adorable! That will help to make this Monday more awesome. :)

Well, at least you look cute! And you are far more dedicated than I am. If the weather isn't cooperating, I go sans-OOTD pictures for the day.

Oh my word, girl you gotta be careful out there! Maybe a little indoor shoot wouldn't be so bad if the bad weather continues? But I can totally relate, blogging makes us do some really silly things...all in the name of style, le sigh. Which by the way, I'm loving this outfit (and the fab umbrella!)!

I would venture to say that you are the following things: a smart girl, a stylish girl, an extreme girl, a dedicated girl and a brave girl. Thank you for all your efforts in these cute pics! I hope your boots are ok!

Fantastic outfit and super cute umbrella! :)

You are brave and look fabulous during the middle of the storm! I live north of Indianapolis and the simple morning commute was enough for me to decide to stay indoors until later today when I will attempt to take my OOTD picture.

You look amazing! And you know living in the Puget Sound region that if I didn't take pictures in the rain there would be loooong periods of time without blogging. Of course I'm not usually dodging bolts of lightning. :)
